  1. A NewGeneration of Electromagnetic MetalMoving System BY SOLIOS THERMAL DATE: 25-April-2013

  2. Introduction to Solios Genios Technology Genios Case Study Conclusion Overview

  3. 1961 • 2003 • 2008 COMPANY PROFILE SOLIOS THERMAL • 40 employees • Equipment supplier • Engineering and site services • Project management • ISO 9001 certified • Part of www.fivesgroup.com Fives Solios

  4. Introduction to Fives Solios Genios Technology Genios Case Study Conclusion Overview

  5. GENIOS – WHY? • A requirement in the market place! • A device that could be easily introduced to existing furnaces as well as new installations. • Be able to offer a unique capability; to transfer and cast molten aluminium from the same device. • Need a device that is safe to use and reduce the exposure of the operators to the hot metal areas. • To be able to bring all the benefits of EMS stirring to the furnace. • Cycle reduction. • Energy efficiency. • Less operator intervention. • Metal temperature and composition homogeneity • Present benefits in terms of maintenance issues and cost • Be cost effective against conventional solutions. 5 Fives Solios

  6. GENIOS – WHAT IS IT? • Genios is a non metal contact EMS devicethatcanbemounted to the side of a furnace • Stirring Mode Fives Solios

  7. GENIOS – WHAT IS IT? • Casting Mode 7 Fives Solios

  8. GENIOS – WHAT IS IT? • Fully automatic operation in all modes • System Overview Fives Solios

  9. Introduction to Fives Solios Genios Technology Genios Case Study Conclusion Overview

  10. PLANT DETAILS • Large secondary aluminium producer (120000t/a) based in Italy. • Casting furnace is a conventional regenerative burner fired static type. • 70Tonne nominal capacity with typical bath depth of 1000mm. • Charged with predominantly molten metal from various melting furnaces. • Used to feed a dedicated belt type continuous casting machine. • Casting Machine production rate is between12 and 20 Te/hour of Si alloys. • Previous method of transfer by mechanical graphite pump.

  12. WHY VCM CHOSE THE GENIOS • Serious issues with safety and operation using electromagnetic pumps (50Hz) and mechanical metal moving systems previously installed on this process line. • Attracted by “double option” capability to stir & cast with the same unit. • Wanted better safety afforded by operating at lower frequencies than are available with comparative EM systems. • Strong interface between bath and inductor. • Integrity of furnace not compromised by removal of inductor. • Potential operating & maintenance savings • Wanted to maintain a consistent metal quality Fives Solios

  14. AUTOMATIC CAST AT VCM Fives Solios

  15. BENEFITS ACHIEVED AT VCM • Significant gain over safety levels experienced with the previous metal moving systems installed on this furnace. Reduced operator intervention due to auto start & good metal flow regulation. • Improved quality – better chemical & temperature homogeneity throughout cast (rejects reduced by order of 15%) • Reduced dross formation (approx.10%) Fives Solios

  17. Introduction to Fives Solios Genios Technology Genios Case Study Conclusion Overview

  18. Conclusion • Can be easily introduced to existing furnaces as well as new installations. • Yes, achieved due to it’s side mounting and modular design. • Be able to stir and cast molten aluminium from the same device. • Yes, controlled casting up to 20te/hr to the client ingot casting machine. • The device has to be safe to use and reduce the exposure of the operators to the hot metal areas. • Improved safety due to less operator intervention – push button operation; operation stops when the device is turned off . • Benefits of EMS stirring to the furnace. • Yes, improvements in metal recovery, improved chemical & temperature homogeneity. The Genios resulted in improved furnace efficiency due to less tasks required with the furnace door open and improved production times. • Present benefits in terms of maintenance issues and cost. • Yes much improved life cycle compared to previous technology used, less down time with improved operability which also offsets costs. • Be cost effective against conventional solutions. • Yes, competitive against other EMS solutions, and requires simple modification to existing furnaces and cast house infrastructure. Offers improved maintenance costs when compared to metal contact devices. 18 Fives Solios
